“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. ”
The Lord says to arise and shine for our light has come, the glory of the Lord is upon us. Darkness is over the whole earth, but the light of God is over His people.
The nations are drawn to the light. We lift up our eyes and see sons and daughters coming from afar. Then we will look and our hearts will be filled with joy.
Jesus has come. He is the light of the world and He shines in the darkness that covers the world.
Our job as believers is to let out the light that is in us. We are to rise and shine.
There is no doubt that the world is trapped in the darkness of sin. As believers we must shine the light of Jesus into the darkness.
We can do this by loving the unlovely, caring for the lost and sharing the grace of God wherever we go.
Lord, you are my light and my salvation. Help me to shine your light in the darkness. Amen.
